First welcome back bonelorry and secondly, what an impressive job you've done to that VRS, liking the yellow and green Callipers go well with it. The insulator wax did a fine job and it's not often used or mentioned on this forum. Engine bay looks great too.

Cheers AS_BO, Yes the MK6 Golf R was a nice Car. Sadly though I just lost a bit of interest having all my eggs in one basket and tied up in One Car.

I know have the Fabia which I still enjoy driving and can still take a pride in owning, It does absolutely everything I want and cost a fraction of what I paid for the Golf. Plus I got a Garage Built, Did my Motorbike Test and have a Mint 2006 Honda CBR600F with a lot of change left over!

Glad you enjoy my threads

Thanks mate, It comes up well for a 13 Year old Car! I am still on VWROC after owning the Golf R and I always share posts on there with whatever I have Detailed...The majority of members run Brand new a nearly new Cars and are usually amazed that such an old Car (To them) is in such good condition.

The Green Calipers are actually Factory on these Cars, All the MK1 Fabia VRS came with Green Calipers except the 2007 Limited Edition Blue Models which came Red.

Trouble is they deteriorate over the Years and end up looking awful, Getting a match for the Original Colour can be difficult as most Greens are too Dark or far too Light. The actual Colour is called Pantone 348C and a company called Paragon Paints make it in High Temp so I got an exact match.

Big fan of Collinites, I used to use no:476 but then found out no:845 is a similar Wax but in a more Liquid form so I have stuck with that over the Years.

Lovely work on this.

I'm on the look out for another VRS for the commute. Can't beat them for a nice balance of economy and poke when needed.

Looks good

I've had two of these myself, trying to convince the wife she needs one as her next car

What was the thinking/reason for not using glass polish on the windscreen?

cheers

Chris
